Looking For Some Funny Advice?
As you can see in the snapshots below, Dr. Julia has spent her life giving advice to just about everyone.
People just naturally wanted her opinion, so she says. And as time went on, she realized that she had a gift (these are her words, mind you, but I’ve come to agree).
Through Dr. Julia’s past experiences, she discovered that she could make some money giving humorous advice on parenting, marriage, anything – if only she could just get her hands on a couch.
Not only did Dr. Julia get a couch, she got a website!
No longer restricted to her office, Dr. Julia can set people straight around the world!

Just so you know, Dr. Julia insisted that I include “automotive” in that list, but I would ask Click and Clack if I were you.
Dr. Julia doesn’t even have a car.

You call them or him or her up and say, I need some advice from you sir or madam. I must finish up some work with my now previous employer since you were gracious enough to make that happen for me. And I have further obligation which will cause me to miss my second day of work with you my new company. Here is what I would like you to help me with, sir or madam. Should I perhaps simply take this entire week off and finish all prior business, or should I work a half day with you on the first day, miss the second day and then begin full time on the third day?
Let them make the choice. Because if you “TELL” them as you have questioned here; YES YOU WILL GET FIRED FOR BEING IRRESPONSIBLE AND YES STUPID!
That said, if you show some intelligence and cooth; you will keep your job and perhaps pick up a few days off in the process, versus enough time to go and find another new job.

Dear pj67oldskool (I apologize if I mispronounced your name, but you must admit, it is odd!)
Although Mad Cap Harry seems a little scary, his advice was pretty darn good.
I am going to rush your question to Dr. Julia, as I notice that you are sort of pressed for time – starting next week and all.
Dr. J is out of town presently. She’s really in the next room with the door closed, but she thinks “out of town” sounds more impressive.
It’s along the same line as “Dr. Julia is out to lunch.” That essentially means that she is, well, basically goofing off right now.
Then we have the classic “gone fishing” sign that Dr. J hangs from her door. That means that she has indeed gone fishing.
Any way, I sympathize with you and your fear of the boot. I have more than once ducked it myself!

by: Dr. Julia
I gather from the photo that you provided that your new employer has connections with the mob. If that is indeed the case, the boot you receive may very well be made of cement.
Have you noticed the use of terms such as “up the river”, “taking him for a drive”, “you dirty rat”, or “Mugsy”?
I would wager that you will hear such things if you request time off from this new job before you even start!
If I were you, Pj, I would do my best to do what was initially agreed upon. Only if it is of dire importance should you do otherwise.
